WORLD'S BEST by Ric Charlesworth

What makes a person exceptional? How do we get from good to extraordinary?

Dr Ric Charlesworth, hockey world champion, state cricketer, winning coach and sportsman extraordinaire, has written World’s Best, the sequel to his best seller The Coach. Dr Charlesworth gives us a clear understanding of what makes players and teams, exceptional. He meticulously and unflinchingly deconstructs team culture to create a picture, a roadmap that provides tactics, explores limits and builds potential.

His messages are as relevant to business leadership and management as they are to sport.

“Team performance…The players are, of course, grown-ups who are heavily invested in the team’s performance. It is well understood that all knowledge does not reside in the captain, boss or even the prime minister!”
